George's story

George is a 26-year-old married man. He lives with his wife, brother and parents in a small village in the district of Dusheti. Agricultural activities are the only source of income for the family. In particular, George has cows. His wife and mother milk the cows every day and produce dairy products, which are sold at local markets at a good price. George decided to expand his herd of cattle and purchase additional cows. The Startup program, which is a joint initiative by Kiva and Credo, enables him to get a loan of $3000 to purchase the cows. As additional cows are purchased, the family will produce and sell more dairy products. Their income will increase and they will improve their living conditions.
